This is a relatively new park that I've passed many times on the interstate but never bothered to check it out. That's because I had this preconceived notion that because it was by a highway it couldn't be all that good. I was pleasantly surprised in that only a portion of it is along the highway and that there is plenty of space for ponds and areas of restoration and habitation of the local wildlife. This pond had a warning sign about the alligators, so I was on the lookout as I captured this. In the end the only thing that bit me was a few fire-ants amongst the tall grasses as I composed the shot. Now that I know better I'll come back, keeping a close eye on where I step.
